Lyrics

KUMM-EvilEye

Written By: KUMM

Just a little late night chit-chat
grab a piece of your skin from the internet
like a voodoo doll I’ll be teasing your scroll
moving up and down the screen
I can see your bed
I can see your room
I can see every little bit of your bedroom
the sound of your voice in my earphone
the sound of your voice like a siren’s call
crawls up the wires
crawls up the wires
tangled in charm
pull all the plugs and slip straight into my arms
I’m gonna change
my shape and my size
and rearrange
my stereotypes
talking to you’s like talking to a wall
talking to a wall in an empty hall
give me a break with your sweet sweet smell
with your sweet sweet taste
get back in your shell
you’re gonna change
your shape and your size
and rearrange your stereotypes
blame pain sorrow and surprise
see live through your evil eye
dressed in chaos, stripped in void
I can’t escape, I can’t avoid
I’m living in your soul
Living in your head
sitting at your table
I’m tired to the life in your bedroom
I’m tired to the bed in your living room
we’re gonna change
our stereotypes
get out of range
in shape and size
blame pain sorrow and surprise
see life through your evil eye
blame your stupid game dressed up in pain and stripped in
sorrow’s gonna change and rearrange to your surprise…
just like all the rest is cursed and blessed and life
occurred to be observed
right through your evil eye..
all my life
been waiting for you
all of my midgets are dancing around you
all the time
we were never true
all of my clocks are beating inside you

KUMM-OneLifeLeft

Written By: KUMM

so much left to say
when a heart meets another
so many games to play
with your sisters and brothers
sitting on a backseat
I notice you shiver
I turn on the cold heat
makes your sweat run in rivers

I’ve had it all by now

so much left undone
when your blood is wasted
one life left to run
but your copy’s unpasted
stomach’s filled with hate
for the one and the only
it’s written on your face
that the end’s always lonely

I’ve had it all by now

so much left to play
when a heart beats another
so many miles away
from your friends and your lovers
writing on a dead line
I notice you shiver
drowning in the twilight
end and start….

KUMM-HandInAMirror

Written By: KUMM

You’re sweet illusion
Be so kind
Distort my feelings
If you don’t mind
I’ll trade a right cause
For a second chance
For a second chance

You’re the one and only point of view
And a hand in a mirror holds a missing clue
Betray a right cause
For a better view

Dreamlike creatures follow me into reality
Sounds and shapes confusing me
Or just appear to be

I couldn’t love you more

You’re a wrong conclusion
Please be gone
Restart my feelings
And carry on
I’ll trade a right cause
For a second chance

Still the one and only fading clue
Is the eye in the mirror
And it’s missing blue
Betray a right cause
For a better view
For a better view

Dreamlike creatures follow me
Into reality
Sounds and shapes confusing me
Or just appear to be

I couldn’t love you more
